Drinking Water on Empty Stomach is a miracle therapy!

It is popular in Japan today to drink water immediately after waking up every morning. Furthermore, scientific tests have proven its value.

Below there is a description of use of water. For old and serious diseases as well as modern illnesses the water treatment had been found successful by a Japanese medical society as a 100% cure for the following diseases:

Headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat, epilepsy, excess fatness, bronchitis asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine diseases, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, womb, cancer and menstrual disorders, ear nose and throat diseases.

1. As you wake up in the morning before brushing teeth, drink 4 x 160ml glasses of water
2. Brush and clean the mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45 minute
3. After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal.
4. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours
5. Those who are old or sick and are unable to drink 4 glasses of water at the beginning may commence by taking little water and gradually increase it to 4 glasses per day.
6. The above method of treatment will cure diseases of the sick and others can enjoy a healthy life.

The following list gives the number of days of treatment required to cure/control/ reduce main diseases:
1. High Blood Pressure (30 days)
2. Gastric (10 days)
3. Diabetes (30 days)
4. Constipation (10 days)
5. Cancer (180 days)
6. TB (90 days)
7. Arthritis patients should follow the above treatment only for 3 days in the 1st week, and from 2nd week onwards – daily.

This treatment method has no side effects, however at the commencement of treatment you may have to urinate a few times.

It is better if we continue this and make this procedure as a routine work in our life. Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active.

This makes sense... The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals...not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain...

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion.

Once this "sludge" reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks:
- Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting.
- Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.
- You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.
- Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.
- 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up.
- Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive...

Solidarity T-Shirts by Paulo Coelho & Mango

Paulo Coelho and the fashion brand Mango have created a collection of T-shirts illustrated with sentences by the author.

More than half of the earnings from the sales of these T-shirts will be destined to the Paulo Coelho Institute in Brazil, where 450 children study and get food, love, education and the possibility to develop their artistic skills. The Institute is exclusively financed by the author's copyrights.

"I knew it was impossible to change my country, Brazil. It was impossible to change my state and my neighbourhood, but I thought I might change my street at the end of which there is a favela," claims Coelho.

40,000 T-shirts have been marketed in 450 shops in 68 countries with 6 different sentences by the author such as "Never give up on your dreams, follow the signs", “The patch to wisdom is not being afraid to make mistakes” and “The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back”.

The T-shirts are already the top-selling item at all Mango shops around the world.

The Silent Treatment

mlyn226l A man and his wife were having some problems at home
and were giving each other the silent treatment.
Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him
at 5:0 0 AM for an early morning business flight.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper,
'Please wake me at 5:00 AM.' He left it where he knew she would find it.
The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him,
when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.
The paper said, 'It is 5:00 AM. Wake up.'
Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.

House fires & plug in air freshners

This message was received from an american friend who is in the insurance property business and the original one was written by a lady whose brother and wife learned a hard lesson months ago.
But it worths reading in order to be careful the Plug in air freshners...

" Their house burnt down... nothing left but ashes. They have good insurance so the house will be replaced and most of the contents. That is the good news.

However, they were sick when they found out the cause of the fire. The insurance investigator sifted through the ashes for several hours. He had the cause of the fire traced to the master bathroom. He asked her sister-in-law what she had plugged inthe bathroom. She listed the normal things....curling iron, blow dryer. He kept saying to her, 'No, this would be something that would disintegrate at high temperatures'. Then her sister-in-lawremembered she had a Glade Plug-In, in the bathroom.

The investigator had one of those 'Aha' moments. He said that was the cause of the fire. He said he has seen more house fires started with the plug-in type room fresheners than anything else. He said the plastic they are made from is THIN. He also said that in every case there was nothing left to prove that it even existed. When the investigator looked in the wall plug, the two prongs left from the plug-in were still in there.

Her sister-in-law had one of the plug-ins that had a small night light built in it. She said she had noticed that the light would dim and then finally go out. She would walk in to the bathroom a few hours later, and the light would be back on again. The investigator said that the unit was getting too hot, and would dim and go out rather than just blow the light bulb. Once it cooled down it would come back on. That is a warning sign

The investigator said he personally wouldn't have any type of plug in fragrance device anywhere in his house. He has seen too many places that have been burned down due to them."

11/4 Worldwide day of Parkinson's Disease & Red TULIP

The tulip symbol that has been adopted both by the EPDA as it's logo, along with many Parkinson's disease organizations and groups around the world, is the Dr. James Parkinson Tulip.

The story of the Parkinson tulip began in 1980 in the Netherlands when J.W.S. Van der Wereld, a Dutch horticulturalist who had PD, gave the name "Dr. James Parkinson" to the red and white tulip he had developed.
In 1981 he registered his prize cultivar, the 'Dr James Parkinson' bulb. The name was chosen to honor Dr. James Parkinson, the English doctor who described the condition in his 1817 "Essay On The Shaking Palsy" and to honour the International Year of the Disabled.

The Tulipa 'Doctor James Parkinson' received the Award of Merit that same year from the Royal Horticultural Society in London England, and also received the Trial Garden Award from the Royal General Bulb Growers of Holland.

It is described as a flower: “exterior, glowing cardinal red, small feathered white edge, outer base whitish; inside, currant-red to turkey-red, broad feathered white edge, anthers pale yellow.”

On 11 April 2005, the Red Tulip was launched as the Worldwide Symbol of Parkinson's Disease at the 9th World PD Day Conference in Luxembourg.

Quote of the day

"There are two kinds of light:

- the glow that illuminates,

and the glare that obscures."

James Thurber

Pork Chops!

Take a look... you won't believe your eyes!

In a zoo in California, a mother tiger gave birth to a rareset of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due tocomplications in the pregnancy, the cubs were bornprematurely and due to their tiny size, they died shortlyafter birth.

The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery, suddenly started to decline in health, although physicallyshe was fine. The veterinarians felt that the loss of herlitter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression. The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate anothermother's cubs, perhaps she would improve.

After checking with many other zoos across the country, thedepressing news was that there were no tiger cubs of theright age to introduce to the mourning mother. Theveterinarians decided to try something that had never beentried in a zoo environment. Sometimes a mother of onespecies will take on the care of a different species. Theonly 'orphans' that could be found quickly, were a litter ofweanling pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the pigletsin tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger.Would they become cubs or pork chops?

Now, please tell me one more time...
why can't the rest of the world get along?
...and then, we are called 'humans'!

James Bond Museum!

After 20 years of collecting, one Bond enthusiast has amassed enough James Bond memorabilia to open
The Bond museum.com.

Peter Nelson has spent most of his life and money assembling James Bond equipment scattered across the globe. But his museum collection includes vehicles representing almost every Bond film, ranging from a typical Aston Martin DB5 to the 42-ton Russian tank from Goldeneye.

Just nobody tell Nelson that James Bond isn't real. At this point, it will destroy him.

Candida Albicans… a fungus that thrives and propagates on sugar and carbohydrates

Candida albicans is a fungus that thrives and propagates on sugar and carbohydrates. By definition, candida albicans is basically the overgrowth of yeast in the body. Yeast is actually not bad for the body. In fact, it grows in most of the food we eat. Vinegar has yeast. Most fruits such as apples and pears have yeast in them. The fruit juice you drink earlier has yeast. Even milk-based foods such as cheese and ice cream contain yeast. The candida yeast is also present in several portions of our body, particularly in the digestive system. However, when the yeast outgrows itself in the body, that’s where the troubles begin. Candida albicans thrives on the excess of yeast in the body. So those who have yeast infection should be more wary about eating food particularly those rich in sugar and carbohydrates. Yeast likes to prosper from food that contains sugar, salt, and chemicals. When the Candida albicans multiply and cause further contamination, an ailment referred to as candiasis develops. This is why people who have Candida albicans are advised to watch their diet. Eating healthy foods is essential to preventing the fungus or yeast from rapidly developing. However, how does one identify which foods are okay to eat, and which are detrimental to the health of those with Candida albicans? The glycemic index is a good way to determine which food is okay or not okay to eat for those with Candida albicans. But what is the glycemic index? The glycemic index is a system that arranges food according to its carbohydrate content and its consequences on blood glucose. Pure glucose which has a glycemic index of 100 is the point of comparison for foods. Using the glycemic index, apples are 49, mangoes are 69, while soft drinks are 100. Now, basing from the glycemic index, those who have Candida albicans in their bodies should refrain from eating high-glycemic foods, or those foods that like soft drinks, are rated from 70-100. Among these foods are ripe bananas, papayas, and grains such as bread, bagels, and cereals. Vegetarians should also look closely on their diet and refrain from eating staples such as potato, sweet corn, and carrots. Those who like to gorge on sweetened juices should also be wary of their intake of sports drinks and canned juices. Those with a sweet tooth are also not spared from this friendly counsel. Sweet favorites such as honey and corn syrups are considered as high-glycemic foods. Fast food items like hamburgers, doughnuts, pancakes, and waffles are likewise classified as high-glycemic foods, and thus should be taken out of the diet. The same goes for other popular food items such as hotdogs, pretzels, corn chips, rice cakes, and ice cream. In the long run, it is best for those with yeast infection to try to eat low-glycemic food such as apples, tomatoes, onion, garlic, oatmeal, green tea, and water, among others. Eat healthy foods instead. Whole foods that are free from sugar and chemical are best options for anyone suffering from yeast infection. Remember that nutrition is very important in order to neutralize or lessen the effects of Candida albicans. In the end, the battle against Candida albicans all ends up with your determination and willingness to put some discipline in your diet.

A damn fine explanation!

The wife came home early and found her husband in their bedroom making love to a very attractive young woman.

And she was somewhat upset.

'You are a disrespectful pig!' she cried.

'How dare you do this to me - a faithful wife, the mother of your children! I'm leaving you. I want a divorce right away!'

And the husband replied:

'Hang on just a minute love so at least I can tell you what happened.'

'Fine, go ahead,' she sobbed, 'but they'll be the last words you'll say to me!'

And the husband began:

'Well, I was getting into the car to drive home, and this young lady here asked me for a lift. She looked so down and out and defenseless that I took pity on her and let her into the car.

I noticed that she was very thin, not well dressed and very dirty. She told me that she hadn't eaten for three days.

So, in my compassion, I brought her home and warmed up the enchiladas I made for you last night, the ones you wouldn't eat because you're afraid you'll put on weight. The poor thing devoured them in moments.

Since she needed a good clean-up, I suggested a shower, and while she was doing that, I noticed her clothes were dirty and full of holes, so I threw them away.

Then, as she needed clothes, I gave her the designer jeans that you have had for a few years, but don't wear because you say they are too tight.

I also gave her the underwear that was your anniversary present, which you don't wear because I don't have good taste.

I found the sexy blouse my sister gave you for Christmas that you don't wear just to annoy her, and I also donated those boots you bought at the expensive boutique and don't wear because someone at work has a pair the same.'

The husband took a quick breath and continued:

'She was so grateful for my understanding and help that as I walked her to the door, she turned to me with tears in her eyes and said,

'Please ... Do you have anything else that your wife doesn't use?'

Global Warming

Global warming could do more than just melt polar ice. It could change our maps, and displace people from cities and tropical islands.
